Delone Catholic High School is pleased to announce that Abbigail Fields, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Mark Fields of New Oxford, Pennsylvania, has been selected to represent the senior class of Delone Catholic High School as the recipient of the Daughters of the American Revolution Good Citizen for 2020-2021.
Faculty and students chose Abbigail as the senior who best exemplifies outstanding qualities of leadership, dependability, service, and patriotism among seniors at Delone Catholic.
Abbigail will now compete with Good Citizens from other local high schools who must complete competitive examination materials on personal activities, service, interest, national and state government, patriotism, and citizenship. Local winners can then advance through divisional competition up to state and national competition. The first place winner of the national competition will receive a $5,000 scholarship award and a silver engraved bowl presented at the National Continental Congress in Washington, D.C.
Abbigail is an alumna of Sacred Heart K-8 School, New Oxford, which is a legacy school of St. Theresa of Calcutta K-8 School.
